Seeking compensation after a neck injury

When your neck injury is the fault of another party, you have the right to pursue a financial remedy. Depending on your circumstances, you could potentially receive compensation for damages that include:

  • Medical and rehabilitation costs
  • Extended nursing care
  • Lost present and future income
  • Assistance with daily living need
  • Replacement services such as outside childcare

Determining liability for negligence in a Dothan accident

To establish legal liability in a negligence claim, we will work to prove:

  • That the driver, property owner or other party owed you a duty of care
  • They failed in their duty
  • Their failure caused your neck injury
  • You suffered damages.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in personal injury cases and will carefully investigate all the facts in your matter to help prove the defendant’s fault.   

Steps to take after an accident causing a neck injury

Following an accident, you should get medical attention as soon as possible, even if you do not feel like you were hurt. Neck injury symptoms do not always show up right away. Your doctor’s reports will also be necessary evidence if you decide to file a claim. If possible while at the scene of your accident, take photos and get contact information for eyewitnesses who might be necessary to support your claim.  

How a Dothan personal injury attorney can help

A Dothan personal injury attorney from our firm will work to protect your interests by:

  • Explaining your legal rights
  • Investigating the evidence to build a strong foundation for your claim
  • Preparing claim paperwork
  • Negotiating with insurers for a fair settlement
  • Advising you about the possibility of going to trial if a fair offer is not forthcoming

There are many steps in the claims process, we will keep you well-informed from start to finish.

When should you consider a personal injury case?

If you are considering legal action, it is best not to wait long. Evidence can become lost or damaged over time. Memories of witnesses to the accident can fade. And if you wait too long, you may lose the right to sue altogether. Alabama has a two-year statute of limitations on most personal injury claims and the clock begins running the day of the accident or when your neck injury was discovered. When you trust our firm with your case, we will not delay in getting the legal process started.
